It's true that this came from that naive era where video directors seemed to think that what went onscreen had to mirror the lyrics. We can be grateful they didn't elect to film the original lyrics -- http://artsites.ucsc.edu/GDead/agdl/buck.html

And while the rest of the band looks suitably embarrassed, Weir seems to think he's doing On the Waterfront.

The Waterfront comment is fantastic. Made my morning.

The way Weirs eyes are always so wide open reminded me of another great comment regarding Sir Boob- the one by McNally in his book where he states that whenever Weir'd be talking to him it always seemed as if he was witnessing a murder over McNallys shoulder.
Or something close to that.

I'm actually a little shocked that there aren't any shots of Bob actually sitting in a bucket headed toward Hell. I guess a few shots of the Rhythm Devils driving through town will have to suffice.
